West Village Duplex, Interior Renovation by Studio ST Architect.
The lower floor of the duplex was completely gutted only preserving the original wood floors. The ceilings were raised to the maximum possible height, adding light and a feeling of spaciousness previously missing.

The color pallet was kept to a minimum in order to accentuate the materials and their inherent properties. White kitchen cabinets with white corian countertops and a nearly white Novelda Crème limestone bench in the living room achieve the minimalism. A few splashes of color were added by using unique materials such as a Spa Green Quartzite floor found in the kitchen and metallic glass turquoise tiles found in the powder room.

Kitchel Residence in Oregon 1

Kitchel residence is one of residence that placed on the hills and surrounded by environmentally sensitive forest. Designed by BOORA Architects, in Northwest Portland, Oregon. The house’s boomerang shape and folded geometry aligns with the topography which produces a dynamic special quality and admits daylight. While designing the house the goal was to create a calm place which maintain openness while preserving privacy. In the result a 825-square-foot room was created that includes a kitchen, a dining area, and a living room on the lower floor. A bedroom and office perch above in a dramatically contoured, sparsely decorated loft. A 38-foot-long, two-level bookshelf filled with a prodigious collection of tomes snakes along the wall’s inner surface, connecting the bedroom to the office along a hovering hallway. This solution doesn’t take a lot of space or spoil aesthetic of the interior but store enormous amount of books. The extensive glazing contributes to the open and spacious feeling of the home, while the tree canopy provides privacy for the living spaces.
